Jonathan Vance, the new commander of the Canadian Armed Forces, has launched a new initiative to crack down on sexual harassment and abuse within the ranks, problems that one report this year suggested are endemic and ignored by military leadership.
He is facing three counts of sexual assault; four counts of sexual exploitation; one count of sexual interference; one count of invitation to sexual touching, and one count of breach of trust by a public officer. In a blunt letter sent to all defence personnel earlier this month, Vance said that sexual harassment and abuse within the military ranks “stops now.”“Predators and bullies who act contrary to the betterment and well-being in our ranks are neither useful in operations nor in garrison and are not welcome in the CAF,” Vance said.
Earlier this month, Stalker joined his troops as they travelled to Saskatchewan to battle wild fires.
Military police are asking anyone with information about the investigation to call them at 1-877-233-6066.
